My daughter, her friend and I stayed here for a long weekend. The owner was one of the sweetest women I have ever met. We are picky eaters and she made us a wonderful full course breakfast every morning. She left us bottles of water every night and a goody basket in the room. The rooms were immaculate. Will definitely... More

My husband and I stayed here one night during the week while attending a wedding. The hosts were very hospitable. They were so helpful with everything from directions to restaurants. The house has lots of history. This is a charming town to visit and the Farnsworth House was a nice place to stay.

I am considering moving to Mt Dora and was meeting with a realtor. The Innkeepers, Kim and Soren are great representatives of this lovely town. The breakfasts were delicious. My room was beautiful and immaculate. I left there feeling I had two new friends. I highly recommend The Farnsworth House, Ellen Teichart, St Charles, IL

Seven good friends, two nights, and no one called us "Mom"! What made the weekend great was the setting and hospitality of Kim & Soren. They were attentive but not "in your face". Breakfast was delicious and the rooms were spacious and nicely decorated. Three of us stayed upstairs in the Azalea room, two stayed in the Canary room, which... More

The Farnsworth House sits quietly in a pretty setting not far from 'downtown' Mount Dora. Kim and Soren are friendly and very knowledgeable about the area and willing to make suggestions. The room was really clean and comfortable. The breakfast was served at the time we requested and was fresh and delicious.

Kim and Soren are wonderful people!! They are friendly and accommodating. And we couldn't have asked for a better experience! We stayed two nights at Farnsworth House to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed in the Bamboo Room. The room is on the smaller side but was fine for the two of us. The bathroom is a nice size. Everything was... More

Farnsworth House is the perfect place to stay while visiting Mount Dora. The breakfast was fresh, homemade and outstanding! We enjoyed eating on the porch in the cool morning breeze. Very clean,quaintly decorated giving a peaceful and relaxing home feel. The service was wonderful and the hosts were truly wonderful and helped with planning some excursions. Thank You.

We want to thank Kim and Soen for making our stay at Farnsworth so comfortable, Our room was very comfortable and clean. The breakfasts were outstanding. The Farnsworth House is on a beautiful piece of property. Mt Dora offers great shopping and an essence of stepping back in time.

My friend and I stayed at the Farnsworth House for a girls getaway weekend. I cannot say enough about the service! Soren and Kim were the most gracious and accommodating hosts anyone could ask for. The house and grounds were beautiful and peaceful. We stayed in the Bamboo Room and found everything clean, comfortable, and beautifully appointed. Kim was very... More

My husband and I stayed in the "Cottage" Room. We had gone up for a weekend get-a-way. This Bed & Breakfast was built in the 1800's, so the history appealed to us. The room was extremely clean and felt welcoming with a king size bed and pretty quilt. It had two private entrances, a small kitchen (sink, refrigerator, & microwave,... More
